2018 Lompoc RB Tao Taua 2018 phenom running back Toa Taua is one of California’s youth footballs most explosive running backs. The 5’ 8” 185 lb Polynesian sensation out of Lompoc California had a breakout season with 21 touchdowns and a prestigious invite to the 2013 Cal State Youth Game. The key to Toa success is his off the field training that consist of running hills and weight training. Toa is the youngest boy in the family and looks up to his brothers; UCLA Commit Ainnu Taua and former University of Nevada RB Via Taua. “Toa is by far one of the best youth running backs that I have ever seen, said Cal State Game Director Derek Burrell. “ Burrell continued by stating “I have coached in the Eastbay All American Game on 3 different occasions and scouted talent for the Cal State Game for an additional 4 years. I have yet to find a running back that can do the things that Toa can do at 14 years old.” Burrell concluded by stating, “Toa is a triple threat; he is agile, quick in space and powerful, by far one of the best that I have ever seen.” The future Lompoc High School running back would like to follow in his brother Ainuu’s footsteps by attending UCLA when he is older. He is driven and plans to attend several camps to help him continue to improve and achieve his goals.
